Throughout this Lenten season, we have been continually reminded of God’s unwavering love for us. It is a love that is on full display when Jesus rebukes the temptations of the devil – refusing to desert us and turn from His path to the cross (Luke 4:1-13). Likewise, His love is perfectly exemplified in the story of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32) as He, like the father in the parable, welcomes us back into His family as children who have gone astray. God’s love is truly tenacious and unfailing – never abandoning us even as we, in our sinfulness, reject His messengers and His gifts.
Together as Lutheran Christians, we rejoice in being the beneficiaries of God’s love and the recipients of the salvation won through Christ’s death and resurrection. And, we are empowered by His unwavering love to, in turn, serve our neighbors and fellow Christians. Bringing God’s love to our neighbors through acts of mercy is at the core of Lutheran Housing Support’s work. Using neighborhood revitalization as a tool with our partner LCMS congregations and ministries, we provide care for the body and the soul – bringing the Gospel to tens of thousands of individuals each year.
This Lent, please pray for those in your communities that do not yet understand the depth of God’s love for them. We ask that you encourage your home congregations to become engaged in works of mercy. And, we hope that you would continue to pray for our efforts and partner with us – by making a gift and investing in our work to put faith into action for the benefit of communities across the country.
